English

destroyed by battle

Destroyed by battle (Japanese: (せん) (とう) () (かい) Sentō de Hakai) specifically refers to a monster being destroyed during damage calculation due to the battle. Whether or not monsters are destroyed by battle is determined during damage calculation.

Mechanics

In the Damage Step, During Damage Calculation

  • If an Attack Position Monsters battle each other, the one with the lower ATK is destroyed by battle.
  • If Defense Position monster is attacked, neither batling monster will be destroyed by battle unless the attacked Defense Position Monster has less DEF than the attacking monster's ATK.

If a Monster is destroyed by battle, it will be sent to the Graveyard at the End of the Damage Step.

Activates when monster is destroyed by battle

If a monster would activate its "Destroy an opponent's monster by battle" (e.g. Elemental HERO Flame Wingman) Effect, it must remain on the field at the End of Damage Step.

Exception

Some cards, such as "Mystic Swordsman LV2" and "Drillroid", have effects that destroy battling monsters during the Damage Step. However, cards destroyed this way are destroyed by that card effect, so are not considered to be destroyed by battle.
